Its a bit early for these rumors but that has never stopped the rumor mill from churning. Apparently Samsung is going to resume work on one of its factories that will be dedicated to producing flexible displays. The company has made no secret of its intention to bring curved displays to the masses, and even latest rumors about Galaxy Note 4 suggest that it may have a curved display. The rumor claims Samsung wants to use flexible displays in both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 5.
Now these are flagships that aren’t going to be announced for at least a year, so we’re bound to hear a lot of conflicting rumors and reports in the meantime. Samsung hasn’t even launched the Galaxy Note 4 yet, which it probably will in September. The Samsung Galaxy S5 was announced back in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
As per the rumor Samsung wants its new factory to be fully operational as soon as possible because it wants to start producing flexible displays for its next flagships. Given how fast the company sells out of these models, it would certainly want to ensure that there are no bottlenecks in the production process.
Though as I previously said, it is a bit too early for rumors about Samsung’s 2015 flagships. We’ll keep our eyes and ears peeled for more information on Samsung’s new flexible display manufacturing facility though.
